Controls Oil • Diminishes Breakouts • Helps Scarring • Great For Bug Bites
The Control Crème was developed to work as a highly effective antiseptic, antibacterial and antiviral treatment to reduce blemishes. Our preparation holistically treats and prevents, and will not dry out the skin for a temporary fix. This remedy helps to regenerate the skin and may even prevent scarring with consistent use. The Control Crème has been renowned for over 20 years in its ability to help aid the relief of many minor blemishes. Customers say it even relieves the itch of a bug bite! Safe to use at any age.
Day: Apply frequently throughout the day to affected area.
The Control Crème was inspired by the use of straight essential oils applied directly on the skin to curb sebum production and the bacteria that lives in that environment, often causing acne.
In the essential oil or aromatherapy world most aspiring aromatherapists are taught that the strong essential oils, like oregano, savory, thyme, and the like, are the ones that will target the bacteria. Though effective to some measure, they are hot and could cause irritation to the skin and mucous membrane. Even applying near the eyes could cause a reaction.
I wanted an alternative to conventional chemicals like Benzoyl Peroxide, Salicylic Acid, and Retin-A to rid the skin of minor to severe blemishes. These popular OTC remedies for blemishes, although providing temporary relief, dry out the skin and often create more of a sebaceous gland issue by producing more sebum. This, in turn, stimulates more bacterial growth, ultimately giving way to the endless cycle.
The holistic view of regeneration and balance became the goal for renewed skin tissue.
Not too hot · Not too mild · But just right
The combination of supportive cellular activity with sebum control allows the aggressive, antibacterial, and antiviral properties of the formula to take root and become evident. The Control Crème is the best synergistic daily application to control oil and blemishes, holistically diminishing further breakouts.

After launching the Benedetta line in February 1996, with exactly 9 authentic preparations, a facial mask was not among them.
We slowly integrated into selling to estheticians and they were the ones that requested that we create a clay mask of sorts. I initially felt that our Rosemary & Geranium Cleanser was all anyone needed to achieve many of the attributes one expected from a clay mask. In fact, there is some clay in that cleanser. Leaving the cleanser on for 20 minutes while massaging congested areas is very exfoliating.
I felt that clay was far to stripping for the skin and would be counterproductive in bringing the skin into balance. I resisted until I was given a pound of some sea veggies that had been micronized (made into flour). Not complete, I added some others, along with Blue green algae, and voila, a Non-Clay Anti-Aging Facial Mask was born. Made fresh with Lavender Hydrosol, you can customize the viscosity to suit your skin.
I am not one to follow trends and run wild with one ingredient as the magic bullet to all your skin care needs. It is not only a system of skin care preparations that work together that matters, but the synergies and collaborative ingredients that form a product.
Benedetta’s Anti-Aging and Anti-wrinkle Seaweed Mask is unique in composition and is suited for most all skin *conditions. Rich in trace minerals, B vitamins and Amino acids, our Seaweed Mask clarifies, detoxes, as it rejuvenates. Part of its unique rejuvenation, when left on for 50+ minutes, is found in the synthesis of collagen and fibronectin fibers which increase skin firmness.
*If you have a medical skin condition or are allergic or sensitive to iodine, please consult your physician before using.
